In between fishing and going to the cinema I had found myself engaged in a rather strange exchange of opinions with a total stranger, via the comments facility on Derek Faulkner's Letters from Sheppey blog. I think that he and Derek have a bit of previous and I just missed the point? Not sure?
Was there an attempt at irony or sarcasm involved with the original comment? Only the author could know the answer to that question. I have since made an effort to discover more about the Yorkshire Pudding and wow, what an original, popular and prolific blogger. I don't suppose we'll ever meet, or even have need to exchange comments, but it does reinforce the importance of being an individual and remaining true to yourself, as taught to me by my father and summed up wonderfully by Hugh Jackman - "You never made a difference by being the same as everyone else"
